was the ultimate threat to the united states was when the worst weapons fell into the hands of the worst people. that led congress to create our commission to evaluate what is our level of preparation to avoid the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, particularly into the hands of terrorists. so it was appropriate that we started the day by giving back to the beginnings of this effort with families 9/11. our report on today comes eight years after 9/11. it comes one year after the publication of the report which was entitled world at risk, purposefully titled to indicate this is not one nation's problem, this is a global problem because it is the earth which is at risk, and one month after the failed attempt at an aviation bombing on christmas day there is some good news. the good news is particularly in the area of nuclear terrorism that the trend lines here seem to be running in the right direction. president obama has taken major steps to revitalize the non-proliferation regime and to encourage needed international cooperation. he's committed significant time and energy and resource

in terms of striking the united states. but we need to have a significant element of the intelligence community thinking five years, at 10 years ahead as to where the threats will come from. that is even a tougher job, i guess, than the imminent threat, but it is very important that the u.s. not be surprised by these developments to the extent that you can possibly avoid it. i look upon our intelligence community is being very, very good. but if there is a weak spot, i think it tends to be longer term. >> well said. that is it. i thank you very much for your time. what i was going to say before was that a former secretary of state said america is the indispensable nation of the world. i say by way, and warn i feel you have made yourself indispensable. it is an extraordinary act of service that you performed. it is important in this particular moment in our government of history that you formed such a collaboration. it is not just bipartisan. i do not want either one of you to think of your party labels when you do your work. it continues to make you very important and influential. we

the al-qaeda in the arabian pen lanes and what its future may be in the united states and the letter reads in part it appears the decision not to thoroughly interrogate abdulmutallab was made by you and other senior officials in the department justice. moreover those with knowledge of this decision have said they are concerned with certain aspects of it without prior approval from your department, so the top senate republican is saying he wants some transparency in this decision, he wants to know who made the decision, the rationale for that decision, and i find it interesting they wants to know why the fbi director apparently is being prevented from discussing it fully with members of congress. jane catherine, i understand you spoke to a former fbi agent who's raising the question what about the quality of this information that abdulmutallab provided? >> reporter: this is the story i've been trying to get at for some time and i think today i've finally been able to. based on what i've heard from my contacts we know that abdulmutallab was severely burned, and i was told that after he

. but none of the largest deals that were done during that period in the united states have gone bankrupt. if you take the 20 largest deals done in a bubble period, so-called, none of them have filed for bankruptcy. some of them have problems, but actually, they're being re structured and i think many of them will get good returns for their invest everies. >> is 2010 the year that private equity can build up and roll them back out? >> you'll see a lot of ipos this year. but he'll see a lot of strategic sales, sales of company to strategic buyers because they're back in the market, as well. and financial buyers will buy things from other financial buyers. so i think you'll see a fair amount of buying activity this year. >> joe is in the studio and he has a question, too. >> i love the general fighting the last war, david. that's so apt. and i can mention about five really well known pundits that are fienting the last war. and none of them actually make investments or run private equity firms, which it's easy to be that way if you actually don't have to, you know, be involved in the economy
that with words. >> it's tough for the president of the united states to say he's not the establishment. >> dan, what do you think? do you think it's time if the president wants to win back a lot of support from the people who put him in that office, does he though out the old state of the union rule back about getting up and say, here is what i'm going to do on health care, here is what i'm going to do on education, here is what i'm going to do on foreign policy, instead talk to americans about the economy, the pocketbook, the confidence they have not only in the financial system but about in government in general? >> contessa, it's very hard to do that in a particular setting. there's a script for state of the union speeches which is pretty well established. they are generally not remembered for their soaring rhetoric. they are remembered mostly they are a serious of programmatic paragraphs fought over for months. every president wants to elevate above that to the best of their ability but it's difficult to do that to do what you're talking about will take a much more sustained effort, one he

state. over the last several years, it was beginning to make progress in association with the united states which really had been looking at haiti for the last year, more businesses were coming here, there was more investment. one of the main industries, which is the gaman industry, was really beginning to thrive. it was on the verge of thriving. there are special u.s. congressional legislation which allowed tariff-free, duty-free import of clothes into the united states. there is a big boon for employment here and the economy here. that now has to get back on its feet again. the government, its buildings were collapsed. many, many members of the government were killed. it's barely reconstituted itself in a former police headquarters near the airport. the government is not showing to the people that it's in charge, that it's not getting out there and delivering its message. i spoke to a former prime minister that said on the day of the earthquake or afterwards, i would have asked the united states or the international donors to give me six huge tents, put them outside the damaged or
